Doses are only general recommendations. There are several factors that may result in either an inadequate or high epidural block.

The author can not accept liability/responsibility from errors that may occur from the use of this information. It is up to each clinician to ensure that they provide safe anesthetic care to their patients.
Normal alteration in the patient’s blood pressure and potentially heart rate (generally slower onset with less alteration in blood pressure and heart rate than with a spinal anesthetic). It is essential to place the epidural block in the operating room/preoperative area with monitoring of an ECG, blood pressure, and pulse oximetry. Resuscitation medications/equipment should be available.
Risk of complications as outlined in Introduction to Neuraxial Blockade chapter. There is an increase in the complication rate compared to spinal anesthesia.
